The Fun Kids team attend events up and down the country, we love to get out of the studio and meet our audience.
We take our special double decker bus – complete with Radio Studio all over the country, including Camp Bestival Festival, British Summer Time in Hyde Park, BRICK at the NEC and the Beano’s take-over of the South Bank
We organise our own activities that can include elements from partners or you can book Fun Kids Presenters to guest-host events.
In August 2016 we took the big Fun Kids bus to UK Festival On Blackheath. In partnership with Penguin Random House we were in the kids section of the festival, inviting children into the bus radio studio to talk about their favourite authors and books. In the weeks leading up to the festival we also gave families the chance to win tickets to the festival and ran 30 second adverts to promote the event.
Fun Kids were media partner at one of the UK’s biggest children’s festival Lollibop – we broadcasted from Lollibop for three days. Lollibop’s targets the same audience – tweens and younger children that Fun Kids does.
In 2012 we brought Fun Kids to the family festival Camp Bestival. We applied for an FM licence from Ofcom and moved the radio station to the site for the weekend. This meant that festival-goers and Lulworth locals could tune in on 87.9FM and all of our digital and online listeners could hear what we were up to as well.
The Camp Bestival activity was sponsored by the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film and included on-air competitions from a selection of other brands too. Our presenters broadcast from the site from Friday to Sunday, interviewing kids and the bands and created both audio, video and social media content.
There are many opportunities to get Fun Kids involved with your event. We have a daily events guide feature ‘Take Me Out’, where we include information about events across the country. This information is also reflected on the Fun Kids website too.
We can also be part of your event, by providing hosts and running Fun Kids branded parties and discos.
